We're crying for Namco Bandai's Tears of 99 right now, as the game debuted in the twenty-third spot this week.

Both series have similar themes -- giant mechas battling it out against an intricate backdrop of political drama -- so it's startling to see the different approaches in their packaging designs.Front...

The game is set to arrive in the country of our envy on May 29th, which we'll also jealously refer to as "the not-so-distant future."Square Enix's upcomi...

Square Enix has released a short teaser video for Front Mission 2089. Before you watch, a warning: this video contains no mecha. No giant robots, no "gears", no mechs, no wanzers, or any of that. We assume they're in the game (it's a Front Mission game! Besides, the mobile version had them.) bu...
